I was so excited about my dead lift the other night, I wanted to shout it from the roof tops. So, I did.
I shared my photo and story with the Women of Crossfit = Strong page on Facebook. To say I am overwhelmed by the response is a dramatic understatement. At present time, the photo and story have been shared 49 times, it has over 2,200 likes and 279 comments. I am blown away. The fact that anyone took time to make the decision to hit the ” like ” button is cool, but the fact that over 2000 people did is freaking crazy!
So, I send my utmost thanks to everyone. I am humbled and so excited so many are joining in the swim with me. I know many of you have found me through this post.
Welcome to the swim!!!
I have had such a great week in the gym. Last night was Front Squats and Hand stand Push ups.
Here is how I did:
14-12-10-8-6-4-2 Front Squats 65 lbs
1-3-5-7-9-11-13 HSPU – used a 35 lb plate and abmat as target
time : 20:24
bonus 1000m row if WOD finished under 25 mins
Finished whole workout in 26:53.
Now, I can do HSPU. Not great, and its more of bending my arms and holding myself up that is the issue, but I can lower myself down to the target. Last night, I had such a hard time sticking to the damn wall. Totally was conversing with myself the whole time. I guess its only fitting since HSPU are such a mental exercise.
STICK MY BUTT TO THE WALL!!! That was the gist of it. I could get up and could not stick it. SO, try and try again. Finally my butt listened 🙂
Then, my front squats. I went up to 65lbs. My legs were burning . Its been a long week for me and I have been way more active than I have recently so I think if I had done this WOD at the beginning of the week, I may have been able to bang it out quicker. But , here is the front squat too, well, going down for the front squat.
It felt great to finish that workout last night. But man, o man, was I tired.
My coach just posted a pic of my back squat that I was excited about from Monday too:
I know in all these pictures my form needs work, but believe me, it is such an improvement from where I was. I continue to work on it and you better believe I will get it.
This week has been so amazing. I have felt the love from people all across the globe. One thing about me, I just tell it like it is. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m honest. I am glad people are inspired by me and my story. I have got such a long way to go and I am so thrilled that so many of you are coming on this journey with me.
Can’t wait to see what next week has in store!
